Crypto Industry News:
Wang Wong Zhongmin, former vice chairman of the Chinese National Social Security Fund Council, announced that China has completed the development of the architecture of the back office of China’s digital currency, the central bank (CBDC).
Wang announced this during the Fintech 2020 online forum organized by the Tencent Fintech Research Institute and the Fintech 50 Forum in Beijing.
With so many existing and developed cryptocurrencies, China is trying to create a payment infrastructure in which these currencies could coexist with sovereign digital currencies. Wang said that such a system would create an environment in the digital currency space for healthier competition and cooperation.
According to Wang, the epidemic has increased competition in the digital currency space, and more technology giants and governments have become interested in creating a better digital payment infrastructure. He also noted the development of Libra.
Wang said in the forum that CBDC in China is currently being tested. Earlier, there were also reports that the country began developing regulations that would help launch and implement the digital currency.
The Chinese technology and payment giants Alibaba, Tencent, Huawei and China Merchants Bank are believed to cooperate with the People’s Bank of China in developing and testing.
Although everyone is still not sure when China plans to officially release the digital currency, head of Ledger Vault from the Asia-Pacific region Glenn Woo said that the digital Yuan will probably be the first virtual currency supported by the state around the world.
